The only guest invited on Zomby's 'With Love' full length, Last Japan's introduction last year was sudden and devastating.
Borrowing tropes from Stateside trap and fusing them with grime, the producer's sound has a weightlessness, an emotional sense which hit hard.
New mixtape 'Ride With Us' is online now, and it's simply fantastic. Matching Last Japan's production sense against a variety of guests - Mr Mitch, Trusta, Treble Clef and more - it's an engrossing document.
Speaking to FACT, the producer said: "I’ve not released anything in almost a year now so the mixtape displays the sounds and production I’ve created over that period and is a way of reminding people that I’m still here working hard on my music. I think people will see the progression towards a definitive sound presented in this mixtape."
